Staff Nurse, Port Talbot

I love the way the tutors introduce us to the energy body and the chakras when teaching the asanas. I feel as I have used the EBRs, asanas and relaxation over the last few months that I have changed as a person. I feel more confident and more in touch with my true self. It is a lovely journey.

Excellent masterclass at a lovely venue. I've wanted to learn EBR8 for a long time. It was well worth it and I've enjoyed catching up with friends and colleagues.

More honest to myself. More neutral. Nature is speaking much more vivid.

LD

Dru Yoga teacher, West Yorkshire

As a qualified Dru Yoga teacher, I thought I had a good understanding of asana and the koshas - which of course I did, but the APD course has taken that level of understanding and more importantly my personal experience of my yoga practice to a different level.  

The course took me on a journey through the koshas in a way that not only increased my awareness of how I experience asana but also how to use asana to reshape my experience.  With the support and guidance of the tutors, I was able to revisit the asana I previously avoided which has contributed to my body being stronger and more flexible than at any time since my twenties - and I now love to practise those asanas.

Emotionally, it has helped me process difficult emotions such as grief and shown the way to change self-limiting beliefs.  For me, the real gift of the course was the tutorials which became the foundation for building a supportive sangha of wonderful yogis which continues to exist.  It was during these sessions of deep personal sharing that our fantastic tutors were able to share further their incredible wisdom and answer the many questions that inevitably spring forth in any process of swadhyaya - I highly recommend this course!

(19), Warrington
When I came along to a Youth course at Dru I didn’t really know what to expect as I had no prior experience with any yoga. But it was a really enjoyable experience and I’m glad I made the decision to go.
The people on the course were all really nice, and I’m friends with everyone I’ve met through the retreats.
Also, the food is really incredible, you will love it.
I’ve always had really tense back and shoulder muscles, resulting in poor posture and poor shoulder flexibility. Even though at first difficult if you stick with it you will eventually see results, as I have.
If you’re considering coming to a Dru Youth retreat I would recommend it, and I found it to be really worhwhile

It's a course for life; for living. It's not work, but it requires the highest personal effort, but the gift is beyond your wildest imaginings. You can be your best self and the support you will find around you will enable this. Laughter, truth, honesty, love and balance.  Just do it, it's a beautiful experience.

Isle of Wight
My visit to Dru yoga has helped me grow
How to live my life and how to know 
A simple act of caring and kindness can create an endless ripple
With goodness, well meaning and sincere feelings
A full heart for sharing and how to be more caring
Now more awake with my eyes wide open
It's helped a part of me which has lain dormant 
It's been hidden because of life's torments
Looking at things now with new expectations
I can offer more value to my friends and relations
A happier and more contented person inside 
Dru has helped provide me with some expertise
How to live life to the full, enriched and at peace
Poem from the Dru Yoga teacher training.

The Spirituality of Yoga Course

This was a coming home to the beauty of Dru. The energy, commit and pure love of the Dru team is such an inspiration. Not only a powerful heart opening course, grounded in sound solid practices but also surrounded by so much support with Facebook / Instagram posts from front line team and participant group and so much more web  ‘lockdown” support. The Dru team both seen and unseen have worked so hard to but this life changing program into action in a very short time and with a no doubt very steep technical learning curve to climb. I wondered how it would feel at an energetic level to participate in an online course, but wow it was also as good as being at Snowdon Lodge (Well OK it a shame Jalaram couldn’t be downstairs to make us lovely lunches!).  Dru you guys are AMAZING.... Thank you   Thank you   Thank you.

The Dru Youth courses have completely changed my life over the years I’ve come. They’ve given me the tools I need to stay positive, grounded, and handle life in ways I would never have been able to without it.

Ayurveda Retreat

Booking myself on to the Dru Ayurvedic Weekend Retreat is one of the best spontaneous decisions I’ve made in a while. I have a reputation for leaving things until the last minute, in this case I booked my place just an hour before it began! I guess that’s one of the benefits of an online course - I didn’t have to physically get there, just make sure I was out of my PJs before the Zoom meeting went live!!! 
After a few weeks of lockdown and spending perhaps a little too much time reading and watching the news, this online retreat gave me a much needed boost of positivity. It was wonderful to connect with all the other people who were attending, to see so many smiling faces, some new and some familiar. 
The content of the course was superbly presented - a good balance of ‘live’ face to face information sharing, question and answer sessions, some ‘live’ yoga, meditation and chanting and then a series of pre recorded videos to watch. We were given plenty of short breaks throughout the day and a nice long lunch break, time to eat, read our notes, watch the videos and get outside for some fresh air.
Alongside the Zoom live video there was excellent support for anyone with technical problems, via the chat box, email or telephone. The chat was also a place to ask questions and share information.
The Dru Team did a great job of putting this weekend retreat together and I wouldn’t hesitate in joining them for another online course in the future. Obviously if I had the choice I’d prefer to be there in person, but this really is a great alternative until we can do that.

The Spirituality of Yoga was a great course, very inspirational and also quite practical. And it was perfect to raise the mind above the worries and problems linked to the world situation. I certainly want to carry on with the follow up and can’t wait for the next one.

Linda Griffiths

Dru Yoga and Meditation Teacher, Porthcawl
My name is Linda I did the Meditation teacher training in 2010, after teaching Dru Yoga for 6 yrs.
Knowing the benefits that Dru Yoga had for me, I then went on to teach both Dru Yoga and Meditation, I found that Dru Meditation took my practice to another level, I became a much calmer person, slept better, my outlook on life changed, my love for nature increased, what I found astounding was when I began teaching meditation, was watching, over the course of time the wonderful changes in people, it was almost like they were blossoming !
So many of my students told they felt so much better since beginning to meditate.
I would recommend the Dru Meditation Course to anyone, it really is a life changer.

Very relaxing. I had the best sleep that I have had in years which must have been because I was so totally relaxed.
